Most likely that is a 2-way valve. One way it will take in the antifreeze and the other way it will take fresh tank or city water.

Could be you have to put a hose on the Antifreze port and in a jug, open the valve, and take in antifreeze when the pump runs.

I am having the same problem with my Tradition. No visible valve to turn to make it suck from the winterize port. Did you get it to pull the antifreeze thru the city port?

My handles look like this. One makes the pump pull from the winterization port and the other cuts off water coming from the fresh tank.

When I blew my lines out with air, the pump strainer blew in half. That's why it would never pull from the fresh tank.
